Created before 1773 (mentioned by Thomas Pennant), incorporating an older, narrower bridge; several feet were added on the west side and some of the arches have been refaced or rebuilt; two earlier rusticated arches remain on the south section. Breakwaters repaired 1854.
Freestone masonry, plain narrow band below parapet of large freestone blocks. Four regular segmental arches, rounded cutwaters with plain buttresses above. The two southern arches have tie-rods running through them which terminate in bolted triangular brace plates. Nothern embankment with five low, round-arched flood arches in rubble stone.
Impressive grouping with Vyrnwy Aqueduct to E.
